Treatment of early-stage non-small cell lung cancer has undergone considerable change in recent years. Areas of great interest to researchers include less invasive surgical methods with lower associated morbidity, indications for adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the emergence of SBRT for peripheral and central or ultracentral tumors, and the probable role of adjuvant immunotherapy following surgery and SBRT, all of which may influence the management of these patients.
Relevance for patients: Currently, the treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer is undergoing changes associated with the evolution of existing treatments and the advent of new treatments.
